An interview on SAGE Connection in reference to a special issue of CDTEI on disability and poverty: “In a time of global economic downturn, it’s no surprise that extended implications of poverty are critically relevant in the domain of special needs study. The May 2014 special issue of Career Development and Transition for Exceptional Individuals which can be accessed free through the end of the year explores this matter and its effects on the career trajectories of young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. In their studies, guest editor Dr. Lauren Lindstrom Associate Dean of Research and Academics, University of Oregon with her team of contributing researchers, expound the causes, concerns, and consequences of the poverty and disability dynamic in career development and advancement.”
